In the election campaign for President in the US the name of Bill Myers and the Weather Men has come up.
This is an extract from Wikipedia which seems factual:
[start quote here]
Weatherman, known colloquially as the Weathermen and later the Weather Underground Organization, was an American radical left group formed in 1969 by leaders and members who split from the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). They took their name from a lyric in the Bob Dylan song “Subterranean Homesick Blues“,”You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows,” which they used as the title of a position paper they distributed at an SDS convention in Chicago on June 18th, 1969, as part of a special edition of New Left Notes. The Weathermen were initially part of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) within the SDS, splitting from the RYM’s Maoists by claiming there was no time to build a vanguard party and that revolutionary war against the United States government and the capitalist system should begin immediately.
Apart from an apparently accidental premature detonation of a bomb in the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion which claimed the lives of three of their own members, no one was ever harmed in their extensive bombing campaign, as they were always careful to issue warnings in advance to ensure a safe evacuation of the area prior to detonation. Nevertheless, their activities have often been characterized as domestic terror.
Their founding document, signed by 11 people, including Mark Rudd, Bernardine Dohrn, John Jacobs, Bill Ayers, Jim Mellen, Terry Robbins, Karen Ashley, Jeff Jones, Gerry Long, and Steve Tappis, called for the establishment of a “white fighting force” to be allied with the “Black Liberation Movement” and other “anti-colonial” movements, to achieve the goal of “the destruction of U.S. imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world Communism.” The statement noted, “A revolution is a war; when the movement in this country can defend itself militarily against total repression it will be a part of the revolutionary war.” The group’s first public demonstration was the “Days of Rage,” an October 8, 1969 rally in Chicago that was coordinated with the trial of the Chicago Eight.
In 1970 the group issued a “Declaration of a State of War” against the United States government, under the name “Weather Underground Organization” (WUO), and members adopted fake identities and pursued covert activities. They carried out a campaign consisting of bombings, jailbreaks, and riots. Their attacks were mostly bombings of government buildings between 1969 and 1975, including the United States Capitol (two bombs on March 1, 1970), The Pentagon (May 19, 1972), and the Harry S Truman Building housing the United States Department of State (on January 29, 1975), along with several banks, police department headquarters and precincts, state and federal courthouses, and state prison administrative offices. The Weathermen largely disintegrated shortly after the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam in 1973 and the conquest of South Vietnam by the communist North in 1975, which saw the general decline of the New Left. Members of the group participated in the Brinks robbery of 1981, in which two police officers and a security guard were killed.

You will note above the words:
“NO TIME TO BUILD A VANGUARD PARTY”
That is the essence. This political tendency is certainly not Marxist or Communist.
Perhaps you could say they are closer to Anarchism. I personally could care little who either Obama, the Clintons or McCain associate with. I am interested in that they all have links with Fascism and Islamofascism. This applies especially to McCain and his buddy Joseph Lieberman, it appliesalso to the Clinton duo, and we have allthe evidence in the world from Bosnia and Kosovo on their support for Islamofascism.
Bill Ayers and the “Weathermen” is a red herring. Jews should join with Serbs and follow the Yugoslav experience.
